Weaver Leather Livestock has partnered with the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association BEST program to present Novice Sponsorships to get new youth involved in the Novice Division. Up to 50 participants will be awarded the sponsorship that covers the OCA membership fee ($60) and BEST nomination fee ($30 per head). Any 8 – 21 year old cattle enthusiast participating in their first or second year of the BEST program may submit and essay for the Novice Sponsorship.

“At Weaver Leather Livestock, we are all about giving kids the tools they need to be successful in the show ring. They are the leaders of tomorrow, so we want to be able to provide them an opportunity to get more involved in the livestock industry and encourage them to continue showing,” commented Lisa Shearer, Weaver Leather Livestock Division Manager.

BEST stands for Beef Exhibitor Show Total and is a youth development program for participants 8 – 21 years old. It is designed to recognize Ohio's junior beef exhibitors throughout Ohio as they accumulate points at a series of sanctioned steer and heifer shows. The Novice Division was implemented to provide a less competitive environment for newcomers to the program and has a separate set of points tracked along with their regular points for the season-end awards banquet. Awards for the Top 10 Novice Showmen, Heifer and Market Animal are given out. As part of the Novice Sponsorship, all participants will be entered to win a Stierwalt Professional Chute from Weaver Leather to be given away at the awards banquet.

To apply for a Novice Sponsorship, visit or to fill out and print the form. Applications must be postmarked by October 31 and sponsorship recipients will be notified by November 10, prior to the first BEST show.
